Even though DDR3 memory technology offers some promises for higher performance, it is still not available widely, which is why Asustek Computer, the world’s largest producer of computer mainboards, decided to offer its customers a motherboard with pre-installed DDR3 modules and specifically tailored heat-spreaders.

Asustek’s P5K3 Premium/WiFi-AP mainboard comes with two 1GB of PC3-10666 (1333MHz) memory modules already installed onboard and covered with high-performance heat-spreaders. Even though onboard DDR3 memory works at default 1066MHz, Asus guarantees that the memory can be overclocked to 1500MHz and higher, however, the company does not name the supplier of the modules or their latency as well as voltage settings.

The P5K3 Premium/WiFi-AP mainboard itself is based on Intel P35 chipset and supports a variety of LGA775 form-factor processors, including Intel Core 2 Extreme, Intel Core 2 Quad, Intel Core 2 Duo as well as future chips with 1333MHz processor system bus. The board support ATI CrossFire multi-GPU technology, sports a number of modern technologies for tweaking and overclocking as well as built-in wireless network controller that can function both as access point or wireless client mode.

The new P5K3 Premium mainboard is aimed at customers seeking for truly high performance, but not wishing to spend time on finding high-performance memory modules with robust cooling solutions and also without a plan to squeeze all the juiced out of their systems. Essentially, virtually all computer or gaming enthusiasts, except extreme overclockers, would find Asus P5K3 Premium/WiFi-AP motherboard an interesting solution.

The manufacturer suggested retail price of the novelty has not yet been announced.
